With the exception of my bicycle, (human power plant) I started riding two wheeled (real) power at the age of 14. That’s when my Dad bought me an old military service cycle. It had bicycle type wheels, a single cylinder two stroke engine and a two speed belt drive to the rear wheel pulley. It was ugly to say the least. Later I graduated to a 175 Puch and then a 30-50 Indian.

Over the years I’ve straddled Enfields, Hondas, Harleys (ugh) Triumphs and finally BMWs. I enjoy riding long trips and treasure the fond memories of my trip to the Arctic Circle on a T-100 Bonneville.

I’m usually up for a ride most any day I’m not working. Work…… The curse of the drinking class. Fortunately it’s only a couple of days a week and most of the time I just tell them I’m gone and it’s okay. Great job.
